RTR IN OCT: A PIECE OF SHEPARD’S WRY

SAM SHEPARD… BEFORE HE WAS SAM SHEPARD

October 9 and 10, 2015  RTR brings to life three of Sam Shepard’s early works. Over the past 40 years, Shepard has written over 45 plays. We might think we know the playwright – but some of his earliest works hold fresh, original surprises.

The evening, themed A PIECE OF SHEPHERD’S WRY, includes 3 of Shepard’s earlier creations: Icarus’s Mother and Red Cross. All are directed by Wendy Wilcox

“I love Sam’s early work because it mixes realism and absurdism into a messy dreamlike soup. Characters howling out their subtext at the moon.” Wilcox says, “It can be challenging but when you connect with it is is a very visceral experience.”

The New Yorker agrees, with critic Edith Oliver writing “Mr. Shepard is the most deeply serious humorist of the American theatre, and a poet with no use whatsoever for the ‘poetic.’ He brings fresh news of love, here and now, in all its potency and deviousness and foolishness, and of many other matters as well.”

The cast includes Brad Bolchunos, Christy Drogosch, Josh Rengert, Megan Skye Hale, and Patrick Tangredi
